The Draped In Diamonds Crochet Vest pattern is a lacy vest that allows you show off your feminine curves, create curves in different places, hide curves, and be worn for comfort. It can be handcrafted with a soft acrylic or a natural fiber blend yarn with a subtle sparkle so you can shine like a diamond without being too bold.
Although it may look like a complicated lace pattern, it is an intermediate pattern that is a quick project for the advanced crocheter, and it’s a great project for an advanced beginner crocheter to master the chain, single crochet and double crochet stitches.

This is lovely. And it looks so squishily cozy (although I doubt you need much of that in Florida!).
Those colours look great on you and it is fabulous with that skirt!

The vest would look great in cotton for FL weather to layer over a dress or tank and jeans.
I love this cute vest
The Draped In Diamonds vest is really cute. I can already see each of my 5 granddaughters wanting one to wear to school.
Thank you! Wow, 5 granddaughters! That’s awesome to have so many granddaughters. Please share a picture of them wearing the vest. And they may like the Las Olas Hat or Terry Ann Hat, both are free through my blog.
This looks warm and breezy at the same time.
Oh it is! It’s great for a chilly office to wrap the front, but you don’t get too hot, if it’s warmer outside.
Love the vest it will be a year round addition to my wardrobe
